UPDATE: Baby Found Dead In Gas Station Trash Can

WATERFORD (CBS13) – Surveillance video has not been able to offer additional clues into who dumped a baby in garbage can in Waterford last week.

Detectives searched through 10 hours of surveillance tape looking for clues into who dumped a baby in a trash can at “Bait and Barn” gas station last Thursday night, but they say the camera angle and volume of vehicles prevented them from getting a good look.

The baby’s age and gender have still not been released by authorities.

The Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department said a man was searching for aluminum cans in a small garbage can next to the gas pumps when he found an unresponsive baby wrapped in a blanket at 9:22 p.m.

When fire department responders arrived at the scene, the baby was pronounced dead.

The baby’s age, gender and identity have still not been released.
